Karin is a vivacious, confident, outgoing individual, this is directly reflected in her artwork. Karin uses bold bright colours with big expressive brush strokes, often with large patches of colour overlaid with elaborate patterns and designs. Karin works primarily in acrylic paint.
Karin’s work often includes depictions of cats, fish and butterfly’s. As a New Zealander of European descent Karin has a deep respect and love of Maori culture. Her work is often a naïve figurative interpretation of the importance and impact Maori culture plays in the lives of all New Zealander's regardless of their cultural background.
In 2016 Karin placed 3rd in the national competition the IHC Art Awards.
